About This Item

[xvi]+190+[1 ad] pages with diagrams, plates and table. Royal octavo (9" x 6") bound in original publisher's wrappers. (Bibliotheca Van der Linde-Niemeijeriana:5349) First edition.

A reminder of pre World War I times was the international masters' tournament begun on April 7, 1922 at Pistyan in Czechoslovakia and concluded by the end of the month, for, with few exceptions, all the leading Continental players, nineteen in number, were on hand, and played the eighteen rounds through to completion. As a consequence a new chess king was developed in the person of E R Bogolijubow, one of the younger generation of Russian masters, who first came to public notice during the ill-fated tournament at Mannheim, Germany, which, when half over, was stopped by the World War. Bogoljubow went through with the loss of only one game - to Tartakower, who also won from Aljechin. Of the remaining seventeen games Bogoljubow won thirteen and and drew four, thus giving him a total of fifteen. Alexander Aljechin and Rudolph Spielmann, with fourteen and one-half each, tied for second place. Aljechin lost only the one game referred to, won twelve and drew five. Spielmann, on the other hand, was the only one not to lose a game. His record comprised eleven wins and seven draws. Gruenfeld finished fourth, Reti and Saemisch divided the fifth and sixth prizes, while Wolff and Tartakower were placed seventh and eighth, respectively. (AMC 1922, page 97)
